ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This Music Announces:
"I am blue-shirt-sun fresh and sweetly unpredictable. I was made by inspired pros working together: Jerry Brown, Barry Gray, Rebecca, Andrew Marlin and a significant bunch of that genius gang of central NC musicians, all grooving under the softly hovering wings of Old Louise, sister Deb, and other bright morning angels. I am born from a range of styles--country and blues and beyond--delivered with a clear, warm voice risen up from a heart that is tender and tough, a heart knowing nuances and knowing the value of kind spirits, fun, romance, and family love--a resilient heart holding little [only smidgens of] regret.
"And I will add: any album that can effortlessly accommodate a banjo and a Hammond B3 has done won the lottery."

And About the Singer/Songwriter/Musician:
In a midnight dream, you stand backstage where all these people are preparing for a big show; and among them moves this worker who makes you (and everybody else) feel good. She's smiling and happy, and you think, Who in the world is that? And then you realize it's time to get a seat out front among the waiting crowd. You find your seat, and wait. Drum roll, curtain, spotlight: and there she is: That happy worker.
It's Rebecca.
Who has, behind the scenes, gently encouraged and inspired more musicians (professional and would-be) and other artists and non-artists than you can shake a fiddle bow at.
This, her first solo album, avoids sentimentality, is gentle, tough, and honest. Her voice is a smooth wave of love. There is this subtle phrasing that makes sentences into songs. In the process of composing, arranging, and singing, she's pulled off a Don Quixote music album: novels folded within a novel that conveys a generous scope of passions, spanning themes that unite into a meadow of sound and meaning.
The songs are biography, history, and poetry.
Get in a room with somebody you love and then listen. Or just get in a room and listen. Or just listen. Or just get in a room--but then go listen. You will find parts of yourself you've forgotten: gifts from Rebecca Newton. - Clyde Edgerton December 2018
